Vodafone’s payment scheme rewards affiliates every time a customer successfully signs up for a contract, with commission paid at least two full calendar months after the customer has signed up. Sales will be declined if the product is returned within 30 days and/or the Vodafone account to which the product is registered, is in a ‘collections’ status at the point of validation (i.e. 2 full calendar months after they took out the product). The Vodafone programe also does not pay out commission for upgrading or existing customer purchases.
Vodafone is currently paying commission on the basic plans to only a select number of publishers:
